Oil on Board, 8 x 8"
by Julie Snyder
This is one of several medieval villages not far from the Mediterranean. They are historical and beautiful. To keep them like this, building is very restricted. If you can see your home from the tower, the owners of the house have a chart of four approved colors they can paint their shutters. If your house cannot be seen from the tower the palette is expanded to eight hues. Most choose some version of blue/grey violet or a pale sage green and the medieval village maintains its official listing as one of the “Most beautiful villages in France.”
